Cody Simpson & The Tide Perform “Tell Me Why” Live

Cody Simpson & The Tide’s laid back vibe is shown 100% in their latest acoustic and live music video for “Tell My Why“. The video captures the emotion in Cody’s voice as he sings, “Cry for the young man / Who’s fighting for your mind / Cry for the old man / Who’s just passed its time / Tell me why, tell me why / You ain’t living but you do not die.”

“This version of “Tell Me Why” showcases a vibe very similar to how the song was originally written: jamming, spitting out soulful spontaneous lyrics and melodies,” says Cody Simpson & The Tide.

If you love this track as much as we do, you can find “Tell Me Why” on the band’s new EP, Wave One, via Entertainment One (eOne).

Hi! I'm Mel. I graduated with a BA in print journalism with music management as my minor. I loved music since I was a kid because it was always a way my family and I bonded, as well as a way to express myself on my own time as I got older. I’m not a singer and I don’t play an instrument, so my way of being part of the music industry is by getting to write about the music I love in various reviews and through my concert photography. Another goal? To make people smile.
